When his son David started in Boy Scouts 43 years ago, Dieter became active in a Massachusetts troop.
He was Scoutmaster in 1992. He is still active with camping and mentoring mostly Eagle Scouts as they learn to lead through the development of a service project.
The couple are the parents of Susan and David.
